Helicopter Line Southern Glacier Experience
From $625.42pp

Get your warm clothes packed, adventure face on, and your best high camera for some of the most breathtaking views you will see in Queenstown.

Venturing from the base of Queenstown to the pinnacles of Mount Aspiring, you will have the opportunity to witness the southern alps of the spiny mountain range.

With naturally mountainous and rigid characteristics, you will have the chance to see vast untouched tracts of natural forestry, ancient glacial icefalls, and beautifully packed snow wisping down the mountains. To top it all off, your pilots will land on the peak so you can get out for a little stroll amongst the peaks of Mount Aspiring. Not a bad way to spend the day with some friends, family, or a romantic date.

If you need help with an existing booking please email us at [email protected], if your enquiry is urgent please follow up your email with a quick call on +61 2 5633 1149 so we can help you.

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely, we understand that paying off a big trip in one go isn’t always that easy. We offer flexible payment plans to suit all types of travellers with zero interest or fee’s (minimum $100AUD deposit required).

Do I need travel insurance?

We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travelers take out travel insurance. If you already have Travel Insurance please understand that it is your responsibility to ensure that your Travel Insurance covers you for all of the adventure style travel you have booked with us.

World Nomads travel insurance policies offer coverage for more than 150 activities. Get a quote, make a claim, or buy or extend your policy while on the road.

Can I book a package but travel in the reverse direction?

Absolutely, just let us know your preferred start and finish location and we’ll make it work.

What is the best way to travel Australia?

There is definitely no wrong way. We recommend either taking a WHIMIT or Hop on Hop off bus pass such as Greyhound or renting a campervan with some mates and hitting the open road. If you feel like getting pretty adventurous and want to get amongst the true Australian terrain, a 4WD may be better suited for you. Enquire now and we can help you find the most suitable transport option.

What if something comes up and I can't make my tour?

We get it. Life is all about the unexpected, especially when you are travelling. If you are unable to make your pre-arranged tour you will need to reach out to our support email so we can give you a helping hand. In all cases we strongly recommend having a valid travel insurance policy which covers you for unexpected cancellations.

Can I add additional tours or make changes to this package?
